Even more bling!

This stuff is addicting! I made these this week with the mucho help of a machine shop I sell to. 7075 aircraft AL 1in thick. Works pretty darn well. I now have full steering! It's amazing the turning radius when you can hit 44 degrees or so. And, at a cost of $0, thats my kind of bling.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Man! Turning on a dime would only be half of it. What's your wheel to wheel now, David?

IIRC, he's running 12.5 rims and 33's. I don't remember if he mentioned his BS.

Actually there 14in wide rims with 31x16 r 15 Thornbirds with spinners, Bling!

Just messin with you!


"what does that make the WMS of your front?

What outside of tire to outside of tire."

WMS I don't know. I have 15x8in wheels with 3in backspacing. The outside of tire to outside of tire is 82in. Which happens to be the exact same as my trailer. The rear is 3.5in skinnier. 3 is about perfect but 3.5 will work just fine for me. I still rub the radius arms at full lock but it's more like a kiss than the rogering it used to be.

Edit: What is stock outside to outside? I never knew what came on the trucks originally. Just curious. Thanks!

I'm so gullible....

Didn't you know it's not nice to tease the feeble-minded?

Nobody knows what the stock outside to outside track width of a d-90 is?
